Clemson safety T.J. Green was ejected from the ACC title game against UNC for targeting on a punt return.

Green, the Tigers’ second-leading tackler this season, went in helmet-first on what appeared to be late hit on Tar Heels returner Ryan Switzer in the second quarter. Switzer had called for a fair catch when Green went in and decked him.

It was a frustrating first half for Clemson’s special teams units, with punter Andy Teasdall attempting to run for a first down on fourth and 15, and not getting one.

Head coach Dabo Swinney was unhappy about it.

Clemson can clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff with a win.
